In the run-up to last November’s presidential election in the United States, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, the hosts of MSNBC’s popular Morning Joe show, garnered a reputation for playing footsie with businessman-turned-candidate Donald Trump. Their regular on-air chats during the campaign season did much to boost their ratings and his reputation. Though the relationship turned sour in the weeks leading up to the election itself, the months thereafter have seen the pair acting as effusive apologists for the real estate tycoon’s wayward White House administration. However things have well and truly taken a turn for the worse as this report from the Guardian points out:
Donald Trump attacked the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Thursday, making an especially crude reference to anchor Mika Brzezinski “bleeding badly” from a facelift.
The president fired off at Brzezinski and co-host Joe Scarborough in a series of tweets posted just before their morning show was drawing to a close.
“I heard poorly rated Morning Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore),” Trump wrote.
“Then how come low-IQ, crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago three nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”
What goes around comes around. And if Donald Trump wags his pudgy little finger don’t be surprised if you see the duo go running once again to the, ahem, Winter White House.
